In 1995, he went to the Atlantic City along with another accomplice where he was successfully able to know the winning number in advance in a Keno game. He gave the number to his accomplice who accordingly bought a ticket and won a whooping jackpot of $100,000.

When his accomplice tried to cash in his jackpot ticket, he was unable to provide his identification which had been needed to get the cash. The officials of the casino became suspicious and notified the authorities and investigators of the state. The investigators found the equipment from the hotel room and Harris had been later arrested for casino cheating in Las Vegas and spent two years in jail.
